 breakable text

 by joker777vs666 on: Oct 1 2012
Score 50%


My panel is on the left side. That means that there is only little space horizontally.

Some thinks I notized or would like to have improved for this context if possible:

* the hight is too high. That means it has quite a big margin vertically.

* Could it be possible to break the text dynamiclly depending on the width also with hyphenation?

Thanks for your work

 Too high on top panel !

Well, I'm back :)

here is a screenshot of your plasmoid:
And well, it would be great to have the text displayed by it behave like XBar's.

Else, it was a good idea to propose "Sunken, plain or raised" :)

An other enhancement would be :
Use the default color (in the KDE settings) unless the user ticks a box and chooses an other color (usefull for people using some weird colors in themes or changing often ^_^)

Thanks :)

Which KDE version is that?
I guess I can't reproduce your issue on KDE 4.9.2. http://wstaw.org/m/2012/10/03/applicationname-plasmoid.png

Thanks for the suggestions!

Somehow LibreOffice document name and application name are not displayed. Any ideas why?

Damn, that is what I needed the most!

First, thanks for your work on this.
Second, I run it on KDE 4.9.3 and it works fine. I didn't remove the Kwin titlebar as it's useful to drag and move windows, but i did remove the label text, have some issues with rendering under Emerald. All in all this is very useful in that scenario, especially with the application name option. Great that the font color can be configured, and that there's the "plain" style included. I guess I wish there could be shadows for text, to be consistent with the menubar widget and/or plasma theme text style, but that's minor.
One more thing - i first tried installing this via the destkop, add widgets>download... however no dice. It said it installed, but it wasn't available on the system. Compiled it from source though.

hi, thanks for your nice work, i have a request, you can add an option to disable the text effect please, and just have the text of the name of the application, and also a bug, if you select bold, restarting the change is not saved, and another bug, the text not well centered vertically, for example I'm using a 21px panel and the text of the name of the application is shown further down that the menubar or clock

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
